Are YOU a Junior Secret Centipede?
We recently unearthed this rare photograph of the very first Junior Secret Centipede Club. It was taken while the Black Centipede was in Hollywood for the filming of the motion picture "Blood of the Centipede." The club later went public, and memberships could be purchased through "Tales of the Black Centipede" magazine, and the popular Black Centipede radio show. For ten cents, fans received a certificate, membership card, badge, and an informative illustrated booklet entitled "How to Turn Ordinary Household Objects Into Lethal Weapons." (A class action lawsuit connected with the booklet was settled out of court in 1943.)
